Fnatic picked up their first-ever VCT trophy by beating the Brazilian team, LOUD, at their home by 3-2, and with this, the EMEA region has received an extra slot at VCT Masters Japan. Leo was announced the MVP of the Grand Final as he showed an astonishing performance with his clutches, impressive use of utilities, and crisp kills.

It was hard for LOUD to come back from 2-0, but they pulled off an unimaginable comeback by winning the next two maps, Split and Lotus, by 13-9 and 13-8, respectively. The decider map was Icebox, and LOUD was successful in getting a huge lead of six rounds in the first half. However, Fnatic was not done here yet, as they started closing the gap by winning nine rounds one after the other to put 12-11 on the board.
The story doesn't end here, as LOUD secured the next round to push the map to overtime; however, they couldn't stop Fnatic's momentum as they won the next to round to secure the series and win VCT LOCK//IN by 3-2.
